    color reproduction

    offset printer

      I'm new here, hello.  I'm currently using InDesigh CS2 and printing from a Xerox 700i which has been calibrated.  For some reason I'm not getting true color reproduction.  My greens look brown and blues look purple.  The Xerox tech says there's nothing wrong with the machine.  Any ideas?  Thank you.

          Could you please specify the exact CMYK color values used for Green and Blue

            Color management and reproduction are complex subjects, to say the least. Do you have a custom profile for the Xerox that you use, or some other working space in ID?


            Do you use the Postscript or PCL driver? Are you printing direct from ID or exporting PDF and printing from Acrobat? Is color mangement enabled on the printer as well as in your ID output dialog (color managing should only be done once)?


            This is most likely a case of mismatched color profiles or incorrect settings someplace, but we need a lot more information to track it down.
